Making innovative ideas a reality on farms and in woodlands across Wales.

EIP Wales is a new approach to supporting the development of research and innovation in agriculture and woodlands in Wales. 

The aim is to bring a range of people and organisations together to develop innovative solutions, benefitting the wider industry in Wales and the EU.

The main focus of approved projects will be in areas including:

  • technical solutions to increasing productivity or resource efficiency
  • ecosystem services
  • soil functionality
  • water management
  • integrated supply chain solutions
  • benchmarking and managerial innovation for producers
  • development of new food quality and livestock health care schemes.

Other innovative proposals which clearly support EU priorities will also be considered.
